To Dust

Alice Russell

  1. gives it a: 4/5

    I was fortunate to see Alice Russell and her band live at SXSW in 2009. I had no idea who she was. She made me a fan immediately. Russell performed with joy, confidence, sincerity and soul. Plus, she has great songs.

    “To Dust,” covers familiar ground, the neo-soul, British soul sound but with a modern twist.

    “Hard and Strong,” stands out as the album highlight. A great pop song with lots of hooks, Russell truly knows how to mix the old soul sound with modern production techniques.

    Definitely a record with checking out.
